Al-Shabaab militants in Galgadud region have reportedly ordered local traders in El-Garas, El-Lahelay and El-Qohle settlements to contribute material support to their war against the allied forces in the region.

An Al-Shabaab militant leader whose name has been made public allegedly ordered the local traders to contribute money and other material support to their group’s activities in the region or face the circumstances.

He threatened to punish those who fail to meet their demands.

Local traders reportedly condemned the rebel order saying they will not be intimidated by such threats.

Some of the local traders who spoke toSunatimes on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals vowed to do to all means possible to safeguard their lives and properties from the militant group following the order.

The group’s order comes just four days after it has also compelled local traders in Wajid district, Bakol region, to pay $8,000 in support of their militant activities, giving an ultimatum of two weeks.

The cash strapped militia group is known for such actions whenever faced by either military pressure or financial crisis.
